  1. Not sure about another reclamation project. Don’t we already have a few of those?

    Definitely in on the left-HANDed reliever, though!

    As for Bauer, where does he even fit in our rotation? Perhaps Friedman keeps engaged and drives the price up on someone else…just because…

  2. I don’t think they will be willing to commit the dollars needed to sigh Brad Hand. Likewise the only way Yates signs is at a significant discounted price. It would make sense for Kirby to try and revive his career with the Dodgers. Just a matter of is he willing to sacrifice the money it will take.

  3. Lemahiu signs with Stl
    Yates resigns a 2 year deal with SD
    Hand to Toronto
    And I genuinely believe Bauer goes to a wild card team…. someone not listed as his top suitors…. I think he is going to end up with the Nationals…. just a weird feeling about that one. But I hope the dodgers get them all on team friendly deals so they can keep Seager, buehler and belly in the upcoming offseasons….. things could get really interesting very soon!

  4. Sign Yates for 2 years with a option for 3. Make it incentive heavy laden deal, like they all should be. Save the money you would spend on Hand to pay for a RH bat.
